MONTREAL, December 17, 2013 — On the eve of International Migrants Day this Wednesday, migrant justice advocates are gathering in support of all migrants to Canada, including temporary foreign workers.
In the words of Mr. Arteaga: ???Temporary migrant workers programs in Canada are a form of modern slavery. They are hyper-exploitive and treat workers as if they’re disposable. I???ve seen first-hand the explotation inherent in these programs, and I’m joining with other workers and allies to publicly denounce the injustices faced by migrant workers???.
Mr. Arteaga will be joined by representatives of allied organizations, including the newly formed Temporary Foreign Workers Association (TFWA).
